The Militant
"Semi-Monthly Organ of the Opposition Group in the Workers (Communist) Party"
Volume 1, 1928
James P. Cannon, editor. Martin Abern and Max Shachtman, assistant editors.

This first volume of the Trotskyist opposition expelled from the American Communist Party is a short set, just three bi-weekly issues (Nov. 15, Dec. 1, Dec. 15, 1928). The volume leads off with the programmatic declaration of the three editors, "For the Russian Opposition!" and includes a long statement by Cannon "Concerning Our Expulsion," as well as Trotsky's "The Draft Program of the Comintern: A Criticism of Fundamentals," containing his critique of the 6th World Congress of the Communist International (1928).
